The Big 64 Bit Question
Since the gift-giving of yesterday, the contact us form has been inundated with questions about U.B.Funkeys compatibility with Windows 7 64 bit computers. It seems that a lot of parents have purchased Funkeys for their kids either for the first time, or maybe some have purchased new computers for their kids to play their Funkeys on. Either way, the case is unfortunate right now.
Bottom line is that when this issue first came up for Windows Vista 64 bit users, Funkeys were actively being released and were selling like hotcakes and it still took Mattel about a year to come out with a patch for Funkeys to work with 64 bit Vista machines.
Looking at the situation now, with no sign of new Funkeys on the shelf and the fan base a little worried that Mattel is letting the line die, it doesn't look good for any patches to be coming out soon (or possibly ever) for Windows 7 64 bit.
I wish I had better news for you all. If I hear anything, I'll certainly let you all know!
PS: Just curious, but why are so many people buying 64 bit machines? Are retailers pushing the 64 bit versions hard? It seems like they'd be more open with people regarding potential issues with their current hardware and software. Hmmm...
